CHICKEN SALAD - Missing Billy - Carol

Author Paul Donnelly
Honolulu, Hawaii

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Situation: Carol's mother's narcissism makes it difficult for her to offer real comfort following the death of Carol's husband. As her mother locks herself in a bathroom, Carol reflects on how Jack dealt with the most significant loss in his life.

Subject Matter: Grief, Loss, Vietnam, Memory, Family, Resilience

Note from Playwright: The one-act Chicken Salad was inspired by my grandmother's response to the death of one of my uncles (her son-in-law). Carol is devastated by her husband's death, but also grateful for being able to experience and embrace a different family dynamic than the one in which she was raised.
